From it`s insidious, hypnotic bass line, jagged guitars and sultry lead vocal, it`s crystal clear from the outset that “Clutch” is no ordinary song and Carli J Myers is no paint-by-numbers pop singer. A highly motivated multi-talented singer, dancer, actress, writer and Organisational Psychology Masters student, Carli, who is a vegetarian since birth and who maintains peak physical fitness in a variety of ways, has lived and breathed music from an early age. Indeed music runs deep in her family, both her father and brothers are accomplished songwriters. Not satisfied with honing her vocals through training and winning singing competitions, Carli fronts her own band `Pacawa` who were recently finalists in Joburg`s Battle of the Bands.
Drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as Christina Aguilera, Amy Winehouse, Pink, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Adele, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael Jackson and classic bands like Bon Jovi, The Beatles and The Carpenters, Carli has her eyes firmly set on her goal of achieving recognition as a respected performing artist and writer. Her debut single “Clutch” was written by American writer Shea Seger and its edgy alt-pop direction is glove perfect for Carli`s distinctive voice. Produced by multiple SAMA Award winning producer Crighton Goodwill and legendary A&R maven Benjy Mudie, the song was snapped up for worldwide digital release by leading independent company Next Music. One of South Africa`s leading fashion and lifestyle magazines, Grazia, was so impressed on hearing the single they scheduled an extensive fashion shoot with Carli, an unheard of mark of recognition for an unknown artist.
With her meticulous work ethic, dedication to her craft and sultry good looks, Carli J Myers seems set to smash the traditional pop barriers with her brand of sassy, adventurous music.
